Rahila Brika – “Improv to Business”
Rahila considers herself a multilingual Marketing & Digital professional… in dire need of some laughs and sunshine. After having left her home base of France to Barcelona, she immersed herself in the Barcelona improv scene. Improv is short for “Improvised Theater” and refers to an unscripted form of theater where actors compose theatre as it is performed. Characters, dialogue, and story are created spontaneously through a collaborative effort of the performers.
The skills of improv are listening authentically, reacting in the moment, creating collaboratively, trusting your partners – these are the skills that allow a business to work most effectively. In her workshop she will lead you through barrier-breaking games, focusing on fun and expression and playing freely to connect with others. She will teach you agreement and acceptance, focusing on learning to listen to and accept the ideas, reasoning, and emotional investment of others. Also, she will get you to listen, beyond just processing the words, and allow yourself to be affected by what others communicate to you. And last, she will focus on trust building, focusing on building a safe environment to express oneself, nurturing the ideas of others, and releasing vulnerability.
